Heading for divorce? Keep your finances a priority

Getting married often means joining far more than just surnames. Property, bank accounts, debts and other important financial assets usually become intertwined in extremely intimate ways, and legally untangling them is not always easy. Couples in Pennsylvania might be hesitant to end their marriages because of the possible financial implications of divorce, but most people can successfully divorce while maintaining their own financial stability.

Do you know what your marital assets are during a divorce?

Most couples go into marriage thinking of it as an expression of love. Marriage is also an enormous legal and financial commitment. This is typically never as self-evident as during divorce, when Pennsylvania couples must untangle assets and finances that have been combined over the years.

What's more likely to influence a divorce, money or employment?

Financial strain is commonly blamed for unsuccessful marriages, but is the data really there to back up that claim? One researcher suspected that there was likely more to it than that and set out to understand the sociological influences for the average divorce. The findings might not fall in line with what some Pennsylvania couples believe to be true.

Kurt Cobain's guitar at center of divorce

Prenuptial agreements serve an important purpose for married couples, especially when one or both individuals have valuable assets to their name. If Frances Bean Cobain -- the daughter of the late Kurt Cobain -- had a prenuptial agreement, it appears that some property issues were not adequately addressed. Because of this, a valuable family heirloom has taken center stage in her divorce proceedings as her ex claims it was given to him as a gift.

Compromising in property division can have favorable results

Divorce proceedings tend to get a bad rap when depicted in popular TV shows and films. Knockdown, drag-out fights might make for good entertainment, but they hardly make for successful divorces. Property division is usually much more effective and yields more agreeable results when both parties of a Pennsylvania couple can work together to decide how to divide assets. This is especially true for larger assets, such as a marital home.

Taking care of the financial aspects of Pennsylvania divorce

Divorce makes a large and lasting impact on the lives of those involved regardless of whose idea it may have been. There is a wide variety of aspects that make up the divorce process, some of which many people may not be aware.
